Absolutely amazing concert by James Arthur! The energy was electric.As far as talent is concerned - he's definitely got it. A great voice range & the ability to whip his audience up into a frenzy! Rocking out with his guitar was really sexy, but the memorable lyrics of the troubled man's songs were heart wrenching. Love him! The lowest part of the night was... going home!
James Arthur is what we have been waiting for, since the sixties, when music was good and words were understood.
The Ballads of love, the lyrics were good, the stories unfold, you can't wait the, CD is sold. Bring him on, bring him on, let him shine with his own song, being himself, let him belong. Love forever xxx
